Rupin Pass Trek – Trekking with Himalaya Shelter

The Rupin Pass Trek is a remote and beautiful journey that starts from Uttarakhand in Dhaula and ends in Himachal Pradesh at Sangla. This trek is a thrilling adventure, taking you through the Rupin River valley, with countless waterfalls along the way. The alpine meadows in the Govind National Park and the views throughout are truly outstanding. The trek spans over 8 days, covering a distance of 63 KM, and reaches an altitude of 15,280 feet. It begins with a scenic drive from Dehradun to Dhaula, followed by a trek that passes through several villages and shepherd camps, offering a glimpse into the Garhwali culture as well as the Kinnauri culture. The contrast between these cultures is most noticeable in the architectural styles of their houses. During the early summer months, it’s highly likely that trekkers will encounter snow leading up to the pass, adding to the excitement of the trek. The itinerary includes a mix of forest walks, steep climbs, and peaceful strolls, with pit-stops along the way. The Rupin Pass Trek is a crossover trek that starts from a national park in Uttarakhand and traverses into Himachal, concluding near Chitkul. It’s a journey that challenges the body and enriches the soul with its breathtaking landscapes and cultural encounters.
